    I am in the process of buying a friends brand new sealed in the box macbook pro 15" (late 2008). The sticker at the bottom states: "MBPRO 15/2.53/2x2G/320/SD/VGA." I cannot understand what this VGA means. If its a 2.53 Macbook Pro shouldn't it say VRAM 512 or something. The box is sealed and I need to know the real configuration of this computer before I commit to buy it. Please assist me...

    I can't say for certain what it is but my best guesses would be that the SD stands for Superdrive and that the "VGA" is an indicator that the mini-Displayport to VGA adaptor is enclosed. Why don't you ask to confirm this? Your friend should know what they ordered...?

    It does have the 512MB VRAM though; all the 2.53 models do.

    Thank you so much for clarifying this. When I asked him about the VGA part, he was clueless. Will this also mean that the 320 part means 5400 ATA drive and not 7200 ATA drive?

    The 320 refers to the 320GB HDD that is standard on the 2.53 machines. The faster drive would be indicated.

    Not necessarily: I have the 250gb 7200rpm drive and my box just says "250" on the label.

    EDIT: I'm a dummy, there's no other option for the 250 drive on a 2.8 model. DOH! haha
